Let's get married?

Marriage is losing ground, according to Census data cited by USA Today. An excerpt:

Unmarried couples made up 12% of U.S. couples in 2010, a 25% increase in 10 years, according to Census data out today.

Two-thirds of the cities with the largest shares of unmarried couples were in the Northeast and Midwest, up from about half a decade earlier.

The information isn't exactly groundbreaking. I've read plenty of articles about how cohabitation has made many couples less willing to take the marriage leap.

So here's my question: Do numbers like the aforementioned Census figures change your views on relationships and marriage?
